Hello!I'm rob
ill teach you how to make a game like runescape but why would you make a game like that is completely beyond me since it is huge and hard to fix all the bugs,
2)if you are going to make it mmo then you need some one ealse other then me, i cannot helpyou code it for online interactions and i canot help you keep track of the players with out seeing it
3) its easy as 1-2-3-4-5-6-optional LOLERZ

PS press the gree plus button i devoted alot of time doing this PLZ!

so here we go:
1)get a easy to use program like Game Maker unless if you are really advanced and good at java script... but photoshop CS5 and Maybe get microsoft C++

2)then you need to A) game maker draw the SPIRTES (aka images) that you will use so using paint photoshop Etc..
Or B) using java script, and how you would manage scripting a game with out seeing it is also way beyond me
(Alterninitive) Ruby is faster and more powerful if you can't afford Photoshop CS5 (around 1000 bucks) thn you use paint,its not as powerful but decent for programing suchgames

3)(from now on only if using game maker) Game maker is a powerful game making tool that alows you to script the entire game mini onlinegames like Marek RPG is made from game maker, so now you need to add the world map, there is a button called creat room(or something like that) you can create the map(or part of the map) one thing RS did was to make different contries or islands or whatever

4) once you are done you will start making the database, the database is opional but it will make everything easer like the cost of items and reeward for quests etc...

5) then you make the smaller detals like people and events and quests and shops, dont forget(if you are gonna draw the peoples you need to draw from 360 degree veiw since they will be moving around)
ADVANCED: you can code it if you like for everything like ramdom events and such.

6)Play though it and fix any bugs that you see.

OPTIONAL: If you want a Final Fantasy like game try RPG maker VX it alot easier with some built in databases that allows you to usethem with a single click

P.s. if you are making a game as big as runescape you will probbably get bored
